Why wasn't Petraeus courtmartialed long ago?

No doubt, a lot of people in DC have known for years about this man's atrocious behavior, personal and professional. His misuse of taxpayer funds alone should make him ineligible for his huge pension. Thatr's about $225,000 - a year - taxpayers' compliments. He deserves nothing.
